The bulk of conversions done by Ronny Coach Building involved stretching standard Mercedes-Benz 500SEL (560SEL in later stages) to length of the customers wishes. Both smaller bussiness limos as well as longer full length stretch limousines (four-door and six-door) were built on the W126 S-class bases.
Here we see a L'Etoile 500SEL Limousine. It's a full-length 46" stretch with four-doors and vis-á-vis seating arrangement. It has Lorinser front- and rear bumpers and ARC Alurad wheels with painted centre caps to match the pearlwhite paintjob of the limousine.
The interior was completely reupholstered in the finest light blue leather including the car's ceiling. Centre console fitted with a TV, special stereo and complete bar. A division makes possible the closing off of the passenger compartment.

At one time in the late 1980s this car was for sale in southern Florida.
